Using a simple methodology employing inexpensive equipment as described in this report, Lawton, Oklahoma, assessed environmental noise levels in their community during the summer of 1975. They measured equivalent sound levels at eleven sites within the city and identified major sources of noise. The results showed only two areas in Lawton with probable adverse noise impacts, both in the vicinity of local airfields. Small aircraft, automobiles, and helicopters were the most prevalent sources of intrusive environmental noises. Jet aircraft were the most intense.
